mid-summer csa membership box

 

A share of in-season produce every week! Fill your fridge with the freshest and tastiest veggies around, and support your local farmer while you’re at it. Choose a weekly box, a bi-weekly box, or pay up-front and pick out your own veggies at market each week!

What is CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In a CSA, members buy ‘shares’ at the beginning of the season. In return, they receive weekly or bi-weekly boxes of produce throughout the growing season. The up-front payment plan helps farmers cover early-season expenses such as seeds, potting soil, and other supplies. You’ll get the bounty of whatever’s in season each week, and an insider’s window into the process! For more information on CSAs in general, check out www.localharvest.org/csa/.

Membership options

  • CSA Boxes:
    • Full share: $410 for 16 weeks
    • Half share: $230 for 8 weeks (every other week)

Dancing Gnome Farm CSA boxes are 1/2-bushel, packed with 8-10 different vegetables each week. Half-shares will receive the same boxes as full shares, but will pick up their boxes every other week. A full share is designed to feed 2-4 people (or one veggie-lover!); a half share is perfect for 1-2 people or as an introduction to CSA. Shares will begin in mid-June and run through Sep/early Oct. Boxes will include the full bounty of the season, from classics like carrots and tomatoes to some fun twists like kohlrabi and romanesco.

  • Market Credit Share:

Pre-pay $250 and get $275 in credit at the Dancing Gnome Farm market stand. We’ll deduct your veggies from your credit each week. This is the most flexible share option–great for those who may be frequently out of town or who would rather select their own veggies each week. Come early for the best selection. Add more credit at any time in $50 increments!
